of post WWII Hawaii.Why I Read this Book I love historical MM romance, not that WWII is ancient history, but the time and the Hawaiian setting captured my attention.What I Liked This is a simple, uncomplicated romance I enjoyed Tomeo and Shin are honest about their attraction and never hurt each other Their romance has the exuberance of young lovers as they explore each other in cars, sneak kisses at Tomeo s family dinners and drink cocktails at jazz clubs The eroticism is well balanced with their emotional development This isn t an angst filled romance butof a gentle love affair between nice men.What I Also Liked I really liked the setting of post WWII Hawaii I ve never been to Hawaii but this book has lovely descriptions of the island, including flora, fauna and the pineapple plantation where Tomeo works Additionally, the post WWII setting is well integrated into the romance and story as Tomeo s family have their first phone installed and are finally getting food after being on war rations I adored the multi cultural aspect of this book as it s set in the Japanese American community after the Pearl Harbor bombing so the prejudice Tomeo and his family face is part of book, as well as their culture around food and family.I really enjoyed the community of Tomeo s family and Shin s lovely father Tomeo s father is a traditionalist, hence arranging a marriage for Tomeo Shin s father is a loving one that I really liked, up until nearly the end of the novel when I think he did something out of character The plot of Shin finding Tomeo a bride provides good tension for the novel but doesn t overshadow the romance which was important for me.What I Didn t Like As I mentioned, I really liked Shin s father with his gentle acceptance of the world they live in which is why I was a tad shocked when he reacts the way he does to Shin and Tomeo It s handled well at the novel s conclusion but it seemed a bit out of character And I think I m used to having total resolution with family members in MM romance and that s not the case here so I may be judging this all a tad harshly.IMO This was an enjoyable read with a gentle, sexy romance with a stellar setting
